6/24 – Payton’s Monday Afternoon Forecast


After heavy rain this morning most of the activity remains off shore. We will likely see a few more downpours this afternoon, but nothing as widespread as this morning. It’ll still be hot and humid although slightly better than this weekends heat and humidity.

Moving into Tuesday, an upper level area of high-pressure will try to build across the Gulf of Mexico from the western Atlantic while a weak shortwave tracks across east Texas, Arkansas and northern Louisiana. This will bring increased rain chances to at least central Mississippi. A rebound of daytime temps is expected tomorrow as well with highs back in the lower to mid

The remainder of the week will be characterized by upper level high-pressure building across the southern half of the country from Texas to the East Coast. It will be a daily battle between daytime heating induced convection and subsidence aloft. A better chance for rain/t-storms will begin moving into the area late in the workweek and through the upcoming weekend. Expect this summertime pattern to persist into at least the first half of next week.
